Growing Culturally Relevant Study Abroad Programs

In this presentation we explore how we utilized Critical Race Theory as frameworks to grow international experiences for Black and Latinx students. For us, this means putting historical injustices within a local and global context. We discuss our intentional approach to destination selection, and local partnerships, even if it creates friction with our international program providers. Ultimately, this presentation uses our challenges and successes curating study abroad programming.
